Candidacy

Vocation - Become a Leader

If you are discerning a call to ordained ministry, your first step should be to contact your synod office. The synod Candidacy Committee makes the final determination, using churchwide standards, to assess a Candidate’s readiness for rostered leadership in the ELCA. At the synod office, you will be directed to the person/s who can talk to you about your discernment journey and the candidacy process, what forms are necessary and how to complete them.

A list of all of the required candidate forms is available on the ELCA candidacy resource page.
